With the weather finally warming up, I expect outdoor grills to be firing up.  Today I thought I’d share a great side dish or salad that would be a compliment to grilled or smoked meats.  This tangy slaw reallt fits the bill.

Cilantro-Lime Slaw


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons (or more) fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lime peel, finely grated
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 8 cups green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 4 green onions, minced


Whisk the mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice, lime peel, chile pepper and garlic together in a large bowl.  Stir in the cilantro.  Add the cabbage and green onion; toss to incorporate evenly.  Season with salt and pepper.  Cover and chill for at least 1 hour.  Can be made 1 day ahead.  Keep chilled.

Season the slaw with more lime juice, salt and pepper, if desired just before serving.  A couple of thin lime slices and a few cilantro leaves makes a nice garnish.  Makes about 8 servings.
